I Thought There Would Be Cake

Life never turns out as we expected. Katharine Welby-Roberts unpacked everyday issues of blame, self-doubt and identity in her debut book 'I Thought There Would Be Cake' with empathy and humour, helping many to think about how we might live life a little better. We look forward to welcoming her to Bloxham for the first time. 

Katharine Welby-Reoberts will be in conversation with Festival Director Sarah Meyrick. 

2.30pm Saturday 17th February 2018
